About the Hilde Spielvogel Award for Outstanding Presentation by an Undergraduate Student
The Spielvogel Award (established in 2014) recognizes the outstanding presentation (paper or poster) by an undergrad student at the Annual Meeting. Papers/posters submitted for this award must be based on novel analysis and interpretation of primary data (collected by the student and/or a co-author) and/or secondary data (published or unpublished data collected by someone other than the author[s]). In addition to delivering the presentation at the Annual Meeting, the candidate for the award is expected to have made a major contribution to the work (e.g., at least 50% of the data collection and/or analysis and/or writing). Papers/posters are evaluated on the basis of the quality of the research, analysis and presentation by a sub-committee of the HBA Executive Committee. Recipients are honored at the annual meeting Awards Luncheon.
